The Canberra Raiders have named their side for Sunday night’s match against the Parramatta Eels at GIO Stadium. 

Joe Tapine has been named in the 17 to make his return from a thumb injury, replacing Corey Horsburgh on the interchange bench.

Horsburgh will play for the Raiders feeder club Mounties this weekend, giving him the opportunity to play some bigger minutes to continue to assist in his development.

Aidan Sezer has also been named on the extended bench as he recovers from an oblique injury, with Sam Williams named at halfback for Sunday.
